Race For The Cure

Wednesday afternoon, before heading different directions for our evening committments, drmellow and I teamed up to take part in The Ultimate Drive™. BMW sponsors this event each year to help raise money for breast cancer research. For every mile driven on one of the specially-painted test fleet vehicles, the manufacturer donates $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. (If you read about the program on BMW's website, just be sure to insert the word "Race" immediately before every occurrence of the phrase "For The Cure". It will make a lot more sense.)

The fleet is working its way southward from Maine and finally made its way to NC. drmellow and I drove a sporty little X3 around Greensboro for about half-an-hour (for an SAV, its acceleration rivaled our 325!), then signed this year's signature vehicle, an X5 that's been travelling from showroom to showroom in the destination cities. It was pretty neat to write my name on the hood of a brand new car.

So, if you've been craving the opportunity to drive a spiffy vehicle without any pressure to purchase it, here's your chance. Sign up online or check with your local dealership for details. Then hit the road! It's for a good cause.
